Biden says US must lead ‘new world order’ — Analysis

The 46th president highlighted the role Washington would have among the “free” states

On Monday, Joe Biden claimed that the US President was “against all odds”. “new world order”would soon be established, and that the United States was responsible for its direction.

During a speech at Business Roundtable’s CEO Quarterly Meeting, Biden claimed the world was at “an inflection point”Which “occurs every three or four generations”And that the US would decide.

“As one of the top military people said to me in a security meeting the other day, 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946, and since then we’ve established a liberal world order and that hadn’t happened in a long while,”According to the president

“A lot of people died, but nowhere near the chaos, and now is the time when things are shifting,”He continued.

There’s going to be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it, and we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world in doing it

The comment raised eyebrows in both the US and around the world and resulted in ‘New World Order’ becoming one of Twitter’s trending topics on Monday.

The term ‘new world order’ has historically been used to refer to an era of great global change and has been used by politicians such as former US President George H. W. Bush, former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The phrase was however the focus of major conspiracy theories over the decades. It is believed that the phrase was used to establish an oppressive global government by elites.

Politicians and government officials have previously received criticism for using the term – most recently Dr. Kerry Chant, the chief health officer of the Australian state of New South Wales.

“We will be looking at what contact tracing looks like in the new world order,”Chant spoke at a September Covid-19 press event, prompting social media to make the phrase a trend.

Chant’s use of the term was criticised by social media users and journalists, including Chris Urquhart (a journalist). “government officials would be well advised to avoid phrases like ‘the new world order’ when they’re talking at press conferences about massive limitations on people’s freedoms.”
